LAHORE - Former Khyber Pakhtunkhwa IGP Nasir Khan Durrani died of novel coronavirus on Monday. 

The former policeman had been under-treatment at Mayo Hospital in Lahore for ten days after contracting the infection. He had been placed on ventilator a week ago after his lungs stopped working properly.
